AP Studio Art explores a variety of media and techniques in drawing and 2D design.  It is a directed approach for the very dedicated and self-motivated art student.  This course will follow the curriculum set for AP Studio Art Portfolio which will challenge students at a collegiate level. A portfolio presentation, a sketchbook / journal and outside work is required of all students. This is a rigorous class with challenging projects and deadlines that must be met.  Students who sign up for this class are looking for a fun and challenging immersion into a higher level of artistic thinking and skill development. 

College credit may be available based on passing the AP test and on individual university requirements.
